The Monster I’ve Become by N.L. Hoffmann (What Hides Beneath Series)
Can someone truly love you when you’re looking your worst? Tate Lee asks herself this every time she sees Evander, the one trying to be her hero. But her worst isn’t bad hair and awful breath… She’s scary like the Boogey Man hiding in the closet. Out of all of the Supernaturals, why did she have to be this one?
Tate is a normal human working as a U.S. Marshal. Actually, scratch that. Tate was a human, but is now a creepy monster – with morals – currently working as a U.S. Marshal. No matter how many times she tries to tell herself she can be different, something happens to show there’s still darkness hiding inside. There’s only one person to blame and she’s at the top of Tate’s list… and she had better start running. After all, Tate doesn’t hide in closets to scare children at night. She hunts the monsters that steal away innocence.
After reading N.L Hoffmann’s Daughters Of Darkness Series and loving her unique writing style that not only pulled you in but also made you really feel for the characters within as well as writing some exception sex scenes!With this in mind when I was ask if I wanted to read an advance copy of The Monster I’ve Become I totally jumped at the chance.
Straight away you are plunged head first into the deep end of the intricate plot which finds Tate driving with her best friend into her old home town to try and find her aunt’s house. She hasn’t seen her aunt since she was a girl, she remembers some family drama but what she doesn’t know is that once she meets her aunt it’s only there the true family drama begins to unfold. Secrets are a funny thing in life and in families they can be deadly, which in Tate’s case they almost certainly are, thrust into a world of Supernaturals where some are friend and others are foe, it is up to Tate to work out not only who she really is and who she is becoming but also who she can really trust.
Evander is the King of the Warlocks (You may remember him from The Daughters Of Darkness Series), he meets Tate in a cell made of Earth where they are trapped together. He knows instantly hat Tate is and when he realises that she has no idea about the Supernatural world he helps her navigate it. From the instant they meet there in a connection between them, one neither can deny, but they come from two very different Supernatural groups who do not normally fraternize due to the monster that resides within one such as Tate. Together they face the challenges ahead where not all of the ones that are throw at them from an outside source but also come from within. Can they make it? Is Tate strong enough to not let her inner monster take over and will they survive each other?
There is a few cameo appearances from a few of our favourite Daughters Of Darkness characters which really brought a whole new flavour to the plot spicing it up that little bit more. I really loved it and as the first in this new series (What Hides Beneath) it was an excellent start truly reeling the reader in, I can’t wait for book 2!
